Congrats to our SBATs!

Last Friday Nina, Aaliyah, Charlotte, Lily, Joey, Ethan and Jackson graduated from their year long School Based Apprenticeship Training courses. They completed Certificate III in Community Services and Childcare which involved regular work placements throughout the year. We wish them all the very best for their future endeavors and hope that the VCAL experience has prepared them well for whatever path they choose.

Congratulations to our Year 12 students of 2016

We are incredibly proud of the Year 12 VCE students of 2016. We congratulate our students on their results and thank the teachers for their work with the students this year.

 The top student scored an ATAR of 98.5. The median study score for the school is 31. The percentage of study scores 40 and over is 7.8%.

  • 13.7% of students achieved an ATAR of 90 or above, putting them in the top 10% of the state.
  • 36.3% gained an ATAR of 80 or above – the top 20% in the state.
  • 52.4% achieved an ATAR of 70 or above- the top 30% in the state.

The Pathways staff have been very busy this week making sure that all student VTAC tertiary preferences are sorted for First Round offers. In the process of calling students we have heard, to our delight, of many students who have received offers to VCA, RMIT Fine Art, Monash Fine Art and Music and related courses as a result of auditions, interviews and folio submissions. Well done! We would love to hear of any offers you have been made! These are the successes that do not appear in a list of ATAR’s- the exceptional work students have done as part of their VCE that enable them to access these courses.

Well done everyone!



Gretta Ray’s ‘Drive’ wins 2016 Vanda & Young Songwriting Competition

The dream run continues for Gretta Ray (pictured below with Tigertown), who has taken out the top prize in the 2016 Vanda & Young Songwriting Competition with her song Drive.



Courtesy of APRA AMCOS and Alberts, Gretta received A$50,000 - the largest first prize for any songwriting competition in the world – at a special presentation in Sydney today. Gretta first had the industry buzzing after winning triple j Unearthed High in August. In-between sitting her VCE exams, Gretta took time out to accept her prize and said she was still getting her head around the win, which she described as “an incredible honour.” Gretta joins previous winners of this prestigious competition, Husky Gawenda (2014), Isabella Manfredi (2013), Kimbra Johnson (2011) and Megan Washington (2009). Listen to Drive here.




Slade Literary Award

The Rotary Club of Richmond in partnership with Mark Slade sponsored the 23rd Annual Slade Literary Award. 

The Slade Award dates back to 1993 when Henry Slade founded the competition to encourage literary skills and celebrate

the writing of students in state schools within the City of Yarra and neighbouring municipalities. This year the theme was

'Being Human' and student writing was judged by a panel culminating in a wonderful presentation evening on Monday, 29 August.

We congratulate Patrick Widdop who received an honourable mention for his story called, 'Harm'.
